suggested they put a green card to the diplomas of seniors getting advanced degrees in science and technology and engineering and math. we need to expand the program, and at the same time, we need effective visa programs and on skilled seasonal workers as well. number five, immigration reform must include an effective and efficient verification system. such a system can and must prevent unlawful employment and one of those employers and employees play by the rules and protect america's fundamental rights and we must protect our border through smart enforcement. now, according to the migration policy institute, immigration enforcement takes share of federal law enforcement spending. today it did not undocumented migration is at or below zero. but we must realize that we will not meet our immigration challenge through the enforcement alone. the goal of our immigration enforcement policy should be to remove real threats to our borders and inside our country. we should report serious offenders and we should not deport people who have a lack of papers is there serious crime. we wrot

for a graduate certificate in science and technology. second question from the audience, does the debt ceiling of a practical purpose? could it be eliminated without much consequence? >> does what have? >> the debt ceiling. >> it does not really have. it has symbolic value i guess, but no other country, i believe, maybe one or two other, but no other countries in the world have this particular institution . to so everyone understands what is, the congress appropriates $100, tells the government to spend $100 on whenever and then it raises $80 in revenue through its tax code. now, the arithmetic here sort of says, you have to borrow $20. shephard -- the congress has to give a third rule. if the congress is approving spending and taxing and those two things are not equal then this kind of logically, there must be something to make up the difference which is borrowing. i am not sink's deficits and debts are a good thing, but the way to address this is by having a sensible plan for spending and a sensible plan for revenue. and make decisions about how big government should be or how small it shoul

for the command and control. this is the art of military science now so we start to pull at that thread. second, third, fourth quarter of an important to all the fuss. so i think it's important to the nation to consider ramifications of looking to someone else to make those. >> thank you. >> i would like to address one piece in the remarks that you refer to as an independent silo and i can see how it might appear that way. we are different services structured differently. reservists cultures are different. but believe you me, my peers on the panel work well and cooperatively together we leverage each other's experience and the judges train together. we take the best practices in our services and try to figure out how best to apply them within the challenges that we face differently so it may not appear that we are acting in a coordinated way but i can assure you that we are particularly when it comes to the challenges of the complex litigation and the prevention and response efforts. there are also in the essential very much the same with their emphasis on prevention. once they get to us, we'll

lives. we don't benefit from ignorance. we don't benefit from not knowing the science of this epidemic of violence. these are a few of the 23 executive actions that i'm announcing today. but as important as these steps are, they are in know no way a substitute for action from members of congress. to make a real and lasting difference, congress too must act. and congress must act soon. and i'm calling on congress to pass some very specific proposals right away. first it's time for congress to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. [applause] the law already requires licensed gun dealers to run background check and over the last 14 years that's kept 1.5 million of the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun. but it's hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. that's not safe, that's not smart, that's not fair to responsible gun buyers or sellers. if you want to buy a gun, whether it's from a licensed dealer or a private seller, you should at least have to show you are not a felon or some
